01:04 mikemol Sorta solved the entropy problem.
01:04 mikemol I'm feeding it /dev/random from a machine at home.
01:05 mikemol pv /dev/random | nc6 ~~  nc6 -l > fifo_in; pv fifo_in | cat | pv > fifo out;
01:05 mikemol and rngd configured to treat fifo_out as a streaming hrng.
01:07 mikemol Also configured rngd to have a delay of 0, and to try to keep the target entropy pool full, rather than only filling it to half.
01:07 mikemol Even with it as it's currently configured, the entropy pool keeps dipping significantly.

01:19 sorear what's the point of feeding entropy across the Internet in plaintext?
01:19 sorear couldn't you just ln /dev/urandom /dev/random at that point?
01:41 mikemol Depends on how good I want my random numbers.
01:41 mikemol And this wasn't all that difficult.

02:08 ficode hi all, how does one get a lang syntax highlighting registered with rosettacode? I'm asking about this cause dart does not yet have syntax highlighting
02:09 mikemol ficode: You want talk with BenBE.
02:09 mikemol Check out geshi's home page. sec.
02:09 ficode cool, also, could I use a different lang as the highlighter for the mean time?
02:10 mikemol Sure
02:13 ficode by adding a different highlighter to the lang tag, what will the code be referenced as?
02:14 ficode I wouldnt want to post dart code as java code cause I used the <lang java/>
02:14 mikemol GeSHi loads a .php file for each language.
02:14 mikemol If you send him a .php file named dart.php, the lang tag would be <lang dart>
02:15 mikemol Also, the correct form is going to be <lang dart>...</lang>
02:15 ficode yes, was being short with it :)
02:15 mikemol :)
02:15 ficode So the best route of action would be GeSHi and creating the proper .php file needed. Thanks :)
02:15 mikemol Yup. :)
02:16 mikemol Hit a search engine for GeSHi; you'll come across its homepage.
02:16 mikemol Somewhere on there is a walkthrough for how to create a lang file.
02:17 ficode mikemol: thanks
02:23 mikemol np

03:25 ficode mikemol: when does rosettacode update the version of GeSHi it uses?
03:32 mwn3d_phone1 ficode: I'm pretty sure BenBE does it for us whenever there is a new release and he has time
03:34 ficode cool, that was my last nudgy question :)

03:48 mikemol ficode: Yeah, actually, we're Ben's guinea pig for a production environment.
04:13 mwn3d_phone joined #rosettacode
04:30 ficode mikemol: hahah
04:31 mikemol It beat me trying to stay on top of it.
04:32 mikemol Syntax highlighting is not a beast I want to try to be on top of.

07:25 Coderjoe you seem to be doing a decent job keeping entropy up
07:31 Coderjoe huh
07:32 Coderjoe as i mentioned, there is an ioctl to add to the entropy pool... but there appears to be a much easier way: write to /dev/random
07:40 Coderjoe doh. it was staying above 1000 so well...
07:40 Coderjoe but it just dipped as low as 283

18:15 Coderjoe_ wow
18:16 Coderjoe_ holding steady at 4096
18:16 nimdAHK what's steady?
18:16 Coderjoe with the occasional dip into the 3k
18:16 nimdAHK good answer
18:16 Coderjoe entropy pool for /dev/random

18:19 mikemol One last tweak this morning.
18:20 nimdAHK huh
18:20 mikemol "but that's not important right now"
18:21 * mikemol loves "POLICE SQUAD!"
18:21 mikemol (in COLOR)
18:23 mikemol As far as why entropy matters...a bunch of stuff should now be faster. Less time blocking on /dev/random for things which need it, less time churning CPU to generate /dev/urandom for things which don't normally need the purity of /dev/random.
